Install the User Client with Microsoft Intune

This page applies to:

Used by both PaperCut NG and PaperCut MF, administrators can deploy their user client by leveraging Microsoft’s Intune Endpoint Device Manager.

Step 1. Create your .intunewin file

  1. Go to Microsoft’s Github page and download the zip for their Prep Tool Microsoft/Microsoft-Win32-Content-Prep-Tool . This tool wraps Win32 App so it can be uploaded to Intune.

  2. Unzip it and place the executable into the \intune folder you created.

  3. Copy the contents of your PaperCut Application Server’s \client\win folder to your workspace; place it in a \source folder next to your \intune folder.

    ProductDefault client path
    PaperCut MFC:\Program Files\PaperCut MF\client\win
    PaperCut NGC:\Program Files\PaperCut NG\client\win
  4. Create a \Output folder to place our wrapped .intunewin file.

  5. Open PowerShell.exe, change the directory (cd) to the root of the working path, and run this command:

    .\Intune\IntuneWinAppUtil.exe -c .\Source -s .\Source\win\pc-client-admin-deploy.msi -o .\Output\ -q

  6. Once the tool finishes, take your new pc-client-admin-deploy.intunewin file from your \Output folder and proceed to Step 2. Install user component.

  7. As a visual aid, here’s an example structure to use in your workspace:

    ┣ 📂Work
    ┃ ┣ 📂Intune
    ┃ ┃ ┗ 📜IntuneWinAppUtil.exe
